Teaching Pull-To-Stand In Three Easy Stages

1. Sit the child on a bolster, seat or small physioball in front of a steady surface to pull up on. The child's feet should be firmly planted on the floor.

Help them bring one foot forward first and then the other foot as they rise. 3. Then try starting from a sitting position.
